Belleville exceeded all my expectations and is the place to stay if visiting Carter's Beach. A huge self contained flat with own entrance and superb hospitality make this exceptional value for money. Close to beach and shops, huge space and the best poached eggs on the Coast! Nearly forgot the homemade baking in the room, free wi-fi and the choice of breakfast time from 6am - 10am!!! I'm not usually a B&B person but I will certainly be back!

I am a regular visitor to this amazing place and never tire of coming back. The hospitality is first class and we have been so well looked after it is hard to imagine how it could be bettered. In fact I know it can't!l The food is amazing and the baking and extra little thoughtful touches are really quite special.

We stayed with Marlene and Ross when we first came to New Zealand on holiday from California in March of 2003. Without doubt this was our best accomodation during the entire month we were in the country. We subsequently emmigrated to NZ and now live in Wellington, and my parents are visiting. We're specifically stopping in Carters Beach so that my parents can have the same experience. Sadly there's not enough capacity for all of us, so we're staying the night at a nearby motel specifically to let my parents have a night with Ross and Marlene. It's really that good. :)

My experience at Bellaville was extraordinary, right from the start. I was tired after a long drive when I arrived at Westport and rather than giving me directions, Marlene came to meet me to escort me to her place. Both herself and Ross sat down to help me out w/ my itenerary that evening and plan a trip the next day, which was very helpful. Marlene even did a washing for me with no hesitation at 10 pm in the evening! Bellaville is reasonably priced, very clean, tastefully decorated and quiet place with two very kind and genuine people that I will not long forget! Breakfast was yummy as well!! .... I would without hesitation give this a 10 out of 10
